This is a very nice initiative!
More explanations and focus on how we could reproduce what you did would be super for the builders!
Oh my! All those fingers!
Well you robot is already well advanced. Keep it up!
You are physically younger than I expected!
The question now is, will you pose next to your robot or again with a bus the next time we see you?
Lol,,, next pic will be with Inmoov ,, I’m 35yo in this pic and i just turned 40 –,,, Still look the Same which is kinda weird – ,,lol
Retweeted on our feed, very nice résumé!
Very nice looking robot!
Thanks You Gaël, but all the credit goes to you.

Happy New Year Bob!!
And keep posting great videos and updates!
Your wokshop is really great and spacious and warm, better be because it looks cold outside.
Thanks Gael. Same to you. Cold outside!!!!!! That day it was a crisp -37 degrees C outside !!!
Hello Damian, you simply didn’t put the potentiometer on the correct side of the elbow, therefore you have set ElbowShaftGear upside down.
You have to make a choice, either you use an extra servo for thumb or you set the spring tensioner. Both are to be set at the same location.
Personaly I was never thrilled about that extra thumb actuation, because the demonstration videos I had seen didn’t convince me.
But regardless, you can still attach the servo, there is holes to set three…[Read more]
Thanks Gael, it’s great to have your personal input, this is such an incredible project. I think I’ll take your advice and stick to the original design, I wasn’t happy with the way that thumb joint printed anyway. Do you have any suggestions as to where to source the springs? I’m having a real problem trying to find any. Also, what is their o…[Read more]
Clean and effective!
Now we are talking about maybe InMoov walking for 2018.
First InMoov step was done in 2017, but with legs that couldn’t really support the body parts.
Amazing color match and face color!
Handy! I had made some but didn’t post them because they were not very accurate regarding the HS805bb.
i know what you mean,,, it took me a few attempts to get the dimensions correct so when they are 3D Printed the dimensions are correct–,, (that statement sounds kinda weird,,,lol)
Great impulse Markus!

beautiful advanced gael.
I am the only one updating the files on InMoov site, it’s a LOT of work to maintain, I can tell you that, and I do that only to please others for free…

Hi. I can understand the difficulty of maintaining files. I have been involved in R2D2 Hobby building and designing and providing open source files.

Hello InMoov builders!
Here is a view of the knee actuation. This is done via MyRobotLab with the DIY Servo service.
More to come with the Ankle and Thigh actuation.
Awesome,,, It’s great to see your R&D work on his mechanical operation for this section–,,,
This is awesome,
How long before we start to see the files for the different parts?
I am very interested in the files for the feet and ankle drive system.

Hey yes, that\’s the privilege to use beta version!
You should see the boxe of beta pieces that are unused in my workshop…
Anyway the motorized legs will require to almost reprint it all.
Yes, this must happen to many people.
I see some builders still printing the original hand that I posted in 2011 on Thingiverse, instead of the updated version from the site.
Darn, I must have printed the early versions. I’m all glued up too. One of the pains of being one of the first printers. Oh well, mine seem to align a bit better and since I have a color transition it is not noticeable.

@Dominique, Cela doit être avec LocalSpeech si c\’est possible.
Super, donc avec LocalSpeech les voix Voxygen peuvent être prise en charge.
Je n\’ai jamais tenté cette direction. Merci à Anthony et Dominique pour cette intégration dans MRL.
oui sa marche si les utilisateur achète la voix
Cool, when InMoov does Shakespear!
Lots of phrases to add in the script.
You must have the first version, this was an issue that was reported a few days after I posted the parts. I have modified since then. ( I had mixed a piece of the motorized legs with the non motorized when uploading)
No worries,,, I’ll download the new V3 Parts,,,,
I really should of checked that out first but it didn’t even occur to me to have a look for a updated part,,,, anyway cheers mate–,,
It\’s very interesting to see how the legs were mapped based on my 3D scan of full InMoov. Great work with the leg mecanism!
Someday InMoov will walk!
Thanks for posting Mindless!
Non les voix de Voxygene ne sont pas prise en charge, à moins que celle-ci puissent être utilisé par LocalSpeech.

I am kidding…
Good progress, what is your plan about that TV drama CF? Can you tell me more about it?
Super, I love to see these progress!
In French it\’s Chuuut. Chut in French means Hush or be quiet.
Some builders were complaining that the Startup_Sound was scaring them when they were working on their InMoov during the night.
So I told InMoov to be quiet.
All parts list and BOM page:
Hi what is the recommended main servo for the head. I am trying to work out the size to get so I can start fitting it together. Kind Regards Ian- John Hughes (@templar66) December 10, 2017
2x Hitec HS805BB HEAD 4 AXIS
1x servos HK15298B JAW MECHANISM
2x Servo DS929hvCorona or similar EYE MECHANISM
Nice and smooth.
Une fois l\’installation de MRL effectuée:

It sounds like you have tangled the tendons somewhere. Inside the finger itself perhaps. This affects the ability to move a finger, because when one tendon tries to pull it also stops the other tendon to release.
And yes each finger needs it\’s own min and max position.
On your picture you are giving an angle between thos two parts, but if you align the holes there shouldn\’t be any gap. (Or almost no gap, it depends on the quality of your print)
See the image:
Ah, now InMoov has a legging!
Nice work shop by the way!
Wow,,,, that’s Bright , that Reddish/Maroon colour almost looks likes its Anodized Alloy in the Pic– very cool,,, never would of though that colour would look so good on Inmoov–
Nice color mix!
Hey, rock it!!
Real cool !
Your printer slicer software needs a better calibration. It\’s slightly over extruding.
It\’s important to have screws that go all the way through the ball because they are much too fragile. I had to glue them with acetone a few times already due to travelling.
If I would do something in redesigning this, I would over dimension those balls and their axes.
Yep,, I agree Mr Gael- ,, I was playing around with them last night and the Endballs are 12mm Día with a 7mm Día shaft which is just too small– –
I’ll start by printing a series a of Endballs and shafts at different sizes – but I think 18mm or 20mm will be a good size but won’t know for sure until I start printing tonight ,, I know a few tricks…[Read more]
As you know I print InMoov in ABS, and try to print everything without support.
I print the worm gear and bicep piston parts without support.
I never run fans in my printer to cool down the parts, but I have set an aquarium pump with a tiny tube that travels all the way to the printing head, which then blows precisely an air stream…[Read more]

I agree it\’s better to add electronics as you built the head.
The eye mechanism requires only two servo and the price for these servo is much lower than $60.
Servo DS929HV for the eye average price is: €5.78 (Hobbyking)
Hello there is a list of Tablet in the Hardware and BOM page:

To run your kinect with MyRobotLab, you need to set it in the config files.
The Nervo Board doesn’t take control of the kinect, it’s the software MyRobotLab that will take over.

InMoov is 1,80m tall with his legs.
Merci Gael , il va être plus grand que moi …….
Currently I didn’t attach the butt, because it is where InMoov is fixed to the rolling platform.
Which I use a lot when travelling with InMoov.

Okay thanks for the feedback, I fixed the link.
There is also those links with the same Arduino code:

Your printer must be smoking hot by now!
Oh, may I suggest you do something quick about his eyes.
It hurts me to see his eyes like this.
🙂 I’m in the processing of using a new eye mechanism so hoping it will fix his eyes. 🙂
J ai bientôt fini la jambe gauche .Peut tu me dire combien mesure InMoov sur ses jambes . Afin de refaire la potence.
I soon finished the left leg. Can you tell me how much InMoov measures on his legs. To rebuild the gallows.
Handy! Not sure if the term is appropriate though…
Woouiii, I can see that your printer is kept busy!
It is indeed! 🙂 It’s soooo cool to see these come together. Exciting times indeed! Thanks for the great work! 😀
My mistake, it\’s fixed now. But you do not need to re-print, just extend the holes with a drill and it will do the trick.
Let me know which one you want to use. Some are under Right reserved terms.
For the other one, as long as the credits are correctly displayed, it will be good to have InMoov displayed in another Makerfaire. Which Makerfaire by the way?

Congratulations, Civrays InMoov is progressing nicely!
I\’m using standard electronic solder 1.0mm diameter. I recommend thinner diameter if you are not used to soldering.
The XT60 headers need a good amount of heat to be correctly soldered.
Did you see you can select various type of voices in the InMoov config of MyRobotLab.
Yea, I would have loved to give him a scottish accent, sadly they only got a womans voice for English scottish at acapela-group.com.
My biggest struggle at the moment though is to get the face recognition to work.
I need to have another look at that this weekend.
Super mobile plateforme!
Are you going to use the kinect for slam mobility?
Thanks Gael! That is possible. For now is fun to have it remote control. Here it is rolling with a lot of people for 3 hours straight! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wK3rZHgVgrw
Looks like InMoov saw something coming out of the closet when you took the picture.
Great progress Perry!
How does it feel to see InMoov with legs?
It took me a while to get used to it.
It’s funny Gael. As you can see my guy is mounted on an office chair base. I am used to him being much closer to ground level. It will take some getting used to.
So now for the big question. Where is the butt? Does he have that section designed?
I think he needs a nice squidgy butt 🙂 Something comfy for him to sit on.
Thanks for the help you provide to the other builders.

If you want you can run the cables also through the older version in the same manner than the new version.

Most shipping are done through regular post, unless the country has serious issues with postage. (South Africa, China, and some others) I then need to require a courier which add extra cost to the buyer unfortunately.
